    I went to the co-op yesterday and we bought some DE, but it didn't say Foodgrade on it...HOWEVER, on the label it says that it shouldn't exceed a certain amount of the animals diet. Is this okay to use with the chickens? It says its also used as an anti-caking agent in animal feed, so I'd assume it's okay for them.

    I just bought some the other day and is labeled the same as what you have.
    It has pictures of all kinds of animals on it.
    I would assume it is food grade.

    Quote:I would assume so as well, mine doesn't have pictures on it... it's a white bag with a little label in the middle.

    More than likely since it states that it is an anti-caking agent.
